Vermont Fiddlehead Pie

Vermont Fiddlehead Pie presented by The Combes Family Inn. Spring and fiddleheads are synonymous in Vermont. Ruth picks these in nearby fields as the Vermont countryside makes its annual transition from Mud to Green. Once the ferns have been washed and cleaned, after removing the paper thin membrane that clings to the coiled fern, they are sautéed with fresh garlic and herbs or blanched before freezing for later use in casseroles and pies. Broccoli or zucchini may be substituted for fiddleheads. Just remember that Vermonters do not eat quiche so this is called a pie.
